This term our topic is Invasion. We shall be starting some new and exciting topic projects this term in History, Geography, Science, Art and DT.
Knowledge organisers will be shared with parents at the beginning of the term to give further information about our topic projects.
This project teaches children about life in Britain after the Roman withdrawal. Children will learn about Anglo-Saxon and Viking invasions up to the Norman conquest.
Food and the Digestive System
This project teaches children about the human digestive system. They explore the main parts, starting with the mouth and teeth, identifying teeth types and their functions. They link this learning to animals' diets and construct food chains to show the flow of energy.
This project teaches children about how sounds are made, associating some of them with something vibrating. They explore vibrations and recognise they travel to mediums ot reach the ear. The children investigate patterns between sound and object and find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it.
This essential skills and knowledge project teaches children about compass points and four and six-figure grid references. They learn about the tropics and the countries, climates and culture of North and South America. Children identify physical features in the United Kingdom and learn about the National Rail and canal networks. They conduct an enquiry to prove a hypothesis, gathering data from maps and surveys before drawing conclusions.
Art and DT
Art: Contrast and Compliment
This project teaches children about colour theory by studying the colour wheel and colour mixing. It includes an exploration of tertiary colours, warm and cool colours, complementary colours and analogous colours, and how artists use colour in their artwork.
DT: Fresh Food, good food
This project teaches children about food decay and preservation. They discover key inventions in food preservation and packaging, then make examples. The children prepare, package and evaluate a healthy snack.
